I knew the minute I saw this dress that I needed it in my life. The ready to wear version of this Victoria Beckham beauty retails at $2,600.00. I don’t have it like that but guess what???….I can certainly sew. I modified Butterick 5852 and made a few simple changes while keeping the overall shape and clean lines. I color blocked my dress as I wanted the top of the dress to really stand out. The color blocking on Viola’s dress is on the back as well. My dress is color blocked only in the front and I kept the back solid black. Excuse the mess – I was on my way out the door to work and decided to take pics at the last minute.
I slayed at work on Wednesday. There is nothing better than wearing a killer dress. Head up – shoulders back – stomach in – and the butt….well it does what it wants. 🙂 The confidence booster is knowing that I made it myself…..Priceless 🙂 Speaking of price I think this little number probably cost me maybe $30 to make.
There will be more HTGAWM fashions in my future for sure. Thanks for stopping by.
Gotta Go….Gotta Sew
